Hi, I just recently started to learn more about this type of discipline, and I really think it is something I could use with my own child in the future. However, I am very doubtful that her father will do the same. So my question is, what can I do to convince him to read about this area, be more supportive and actually do it with me? Also, is there any research or articles I could read online about it? Thanks!
I'm confused, what type of gentle discipline are you wanting more information on? Are you thinking along the lines of time outs, natural/logical consequences, playful parenting, up/cl? Here are some basic resources I have found very helpful:
* the Positive Discipline book series by Jane Nelson:
*Dr. Laura Markham's new book and website:
*Hand in Hand Parenting:

And then: I'm really, really tired of making angels.
But wait, could it really be true?
